Cycle Oregon Pattern Language Template (unofficial!)

Next task will be to create some examples and possibly modify this template. Need some examples because its hard to think how the intro paragraph could be different from the 'essence of the problem'.

Below is what each page (each pattern) would look like, approximately. It could be done using MediaWiki.
